why am I not in the contest?

I don't understand why my instructable, the sphere lamp, isn't in the coffeecup contest anymore. Is it because of the use of plastic cups? Because as I mentioned it was intended with paper cups but I didn't had those available. If so, why didn't I got the message about disqualification at first and are there other instructables in the contest which only have plans about using paper cups but no cup was used?
Will it help if I rebuild it with paper cups?

If the project was in the contest, but is no longer, you would be better off contacting one of the admin team directly.
